  • An Amazing House in Paradise

    "This luxurious residence helped us have an awesome end to an already great trip to Costa Rica. After spending 4 adventurous days in the Arenal Volcano area, we spent the last 4 days of our trip relaxing in this spacious home in Manuel Antonio. Framed in wall to wall windows, we had a perfect view from every location to see the mountains to our right, the ocean in the distance and every shade of green around us. Sunsets were spectacular! We hardly wanted to leave as it felt like a piece of paradise right there with an elegant infinity pool and the sounds of the water falling to a smaller pool below the main floor. Wildlife surrounded us with many species of birds to view such as hummingbirds,macaws, melodious blackbirds, and Tanager’s. It was common to see black iguanas, lizards and a variety of colorful butterflies. We were lucky to spot a group of squirrel monkeys climbing on a nearby powerline. The AC was a huge plus in the private bedrooms but we opened up every door and window for fresh air with cross ventilation in the main area. Our girls felt they got the best room in the house on the bottom level. It was spa-like with the sounds of the waterfall into the smaller pool outside. All bedrooms were spacious and clean. Vanessa was there to greet us answering questions, getting us food, making reservations for excursions, and kind of at our beck and call. She recommended Chef Xavier for one day to cook meals. The kids all still say this was one of the best days of our trip. They watched him prepare each delicious meal! Well worth every penny. We are ready to go back…Pura Vida!"

  • Beautiful home in Manuel Antonio away from it all

    "My wife, eight year old son and I stayed at Casa Gina from 3/25-3/31/2016 and it is a wonderful home. Situated atop a high hill in a nice gated community you feel secluded, but you're only 2 minutes away from restaurants, sights and beaches. The home is well appointed, very clean and large enough to accommodate 6 very comfortably. You have all the comforts of home with washer/dryer, full kitchen with dishwasher, BBQ, pool, safe and alarm. They have an always hot hot water system that some complained about, and at first we agreed until we figured out to keep the handles about middle and the water will stay a pretty constant warm...otherwise you will cycle between extreme heat and then cold water. My one complaint is the wifi, it is very slow and only allows for checking email, sending text messages (no pictures in those) and maybe doing some light web browsing, but don't expect pages to load quickly. Also, don't expect to stream anything either, it was enough for what we needed, but had hoped for a slightly faster connection.You can expect to see sloths, monkeys, iguanas and lots of birds in the back yard, which was nice when we'd relax at the pool. Tip, if you are going to do any tours of any kind, they will usually pick you up right from the house or at least the front gate of the community saving you from having to find places there, which is not always easy since many streets don't have signs in CR. Take the ATV tour to Rainmaker, its a great area and has a local brewery there serving fantastic beer. Gary and Gina were very easy to work with and Jeannette and Carlos (the local contacts in Costa Rica) were great. We would definitely go back again and recommend this place to anyone!!"

  • We loved Jungle Creek!

    "Our family of four really enjoyed our stay in the 2 bedroom Dos Palmas Villa. Paula was really helpful with arranging an itinerary and booking activities before we arrived. She and Clark were not home during our stay, but Ellie and her husband were staying on the property. Ellie was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We enjoyed horseback riding with Rancho Tipica don Juan, ziplining with Canopy Safari, and a guided tour of the national park with Pablo. The typical Costa Rican lunches with the horseback riding and ziplining tours were very good. We also enjoyed eating dinners out in Manuel Antonio at El Wagon, Aqua Azul, and Baja Roja. We made breakfast in our condo every morning and the kitchen had everything we needed. Our boys loved playing in the little pool at the resort and cooled off in it every afternoon. Thank you for a great stay!"

  • Perfect Family Getaway

    "The only negative thing I can say about the trip was the travel day (and I'm only complaining because I had a cranky 19 Month old with me). Other than that, the family jungle house was everything we imagined and more. The house was larger than I had expected, with each couple having their own room (and bathroom). The service was spectacular. The owner, Heather, was very helpful and accessible. She responds to emails within minutes. I would recommend using Josue, the concierge, for everything and anything. He was extremely accommodating, and always answered his phone. He set us up with a few excursions including zip-lining, a catamaran trip, and also took us on a tour of the national park. He really wanted to make sure we enjoyed our trip, and reached out to us almost daily to make sure we were ok. Roxana's cooking was second to none. We were very surprised at how good the Costa Rican cuisine was when we went out to eat, but Roxana's meals trumped everything we had at restaurants. She made enough food to feed a small army, and it was a lot less expensive than going out for meals. She handled everything else with us barely knowing she was there. I thought the best part of the house was the pool. After going to the beach all day, it was a really nice treat to come back and use the pool to cool off. It was clean, the slide was amazing, and the 3 different levels allowed everyone to enjoy it (including the baby) thoroughly. The pool was cleaned and maintained 3 times while we were there. The house has a security system which was a nice feature as well. This house was recommended to me by a friend, who told me it was paradise...I would agree and recommend this to anyone who wants a relaxing and fun vacation."
